A page in Enterprise portal is defined by 2 objects in Ax 2009
1. Web menu item URL
Path AOT –> Web –> Web Menu Items –> URLs
2. Page definition
Path AOT –> Web –> Static Files –> Page definitions
Every time a Page is changed (added / removed user controls / web parts) the page definition needs to be updated.
To do this locate the URL of the web page in the AOT
and right click –> Import
After importing the file, look at the page definition for the corresponding URL. It will not have an object in the current working Layer.
Deploying specific EP pages:
Right click on the page definition –> deploy page
This deploys the page and a message is shown
This deployment method is not supported for 64 bit machines, and some of the 64 bit machine I have worked with give issues and may not deploy. The only way to deploy it is by using the AxUpdatePortal.exe
NOTE: AxUpdatePortal.exe will redeploy the entire enterprise portal
